A box 2 centimeters high, 3 centimeters wide, and 5 centimeters long can hold 40 grams of clay. A second box has twice the height, three times the width, and the same length as the first box. How many grams of clay can it hold?
The box has volume 30 \(cm^3\), and can hold 40 grams of clay.
The second box has volume \(4*9*5 = 180cm^3\), so it can hold 240 grams of clay.
L W H = 40
L (3W)(2H) = 40 (3)(2) = 240 gm
